Nominee selected for township supervisor

September 08, 1999|By DON AINES

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Rob Kauffman is not new to politics, but he will be running for his first elected office after Franklin County Republican Committee members selected him Wednesday night to run for Greene Township supervisor.

Kauffman, 25, of Scotland, Pa., was picked over three other candidates to be on the ballot Nov. 2. His name will replace that of Richard "Dick" Kramer, who died Aug. 31. Kramer, a Republican, had served as a supervisor from 1978 to 1995 before retiring. He was reappointed to the board to fill a vacancy on March 31, 1998.

Kauffman, a GOP state and county committeeman, works for the Pennsylvania House Republican Caucus in Harrisburg, Pa. He was able to get a majority of the votes on the first ballot.

The other hopefuls were Glenn Shetter, chairman of the township's planning commission; Charles E. Bush III, a retired Pennsylvania State Trooper and now a Franklin County Sheriff's Deputy; and Edwin Harr, who is retired from the Scotland School for Veterans Children and now works at the Penn National Golf Course.

Township Supervisor Dave Jamison said someone must still be appointed to fill the vacancy created by Kramer's death. If he and Supervisor Paul Ambrose don't name an interim supervisor by Oct. 1, the selection will be done by the township Vacancy Board.

Because no Democrat ran in the May primary, no name from that party will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot.
